These work really good for piping macarons. They are larger than I used to use but it goes faster that way. I recommend this tip.

Dana R. from Sweetp on 08/27/2020

This is a perfect piping tip for almost anything with such a versatile size. It's especially great for piping borders on cakes and filling macarons.

Laura P. from Courageous Bakery on 03/31/2019

This piping tip gives great consistent icing delivery. It is easy to clean and durable. I would recommend this product to for its cost and effectiveness.

Ashley G. from The Hop Ice Cream Cafe on 02/15/2019

I really like these Ateco 803 5/16" Plain #18 Piping Tip (August Thomsen) to create pearl buttercream borders on my cakes and make my cakes look very professional. The price is very good for this very good quality product.

Kiera T. on 05/25/2018

I'm really enjoying this piping tip, It has a good sized smooth round tip its very good for filling mousse cups, or for icing cupcakes

Yoel R. from Century Centimentals on 04/26/2018

I love this tip because it is a bit longer than a standard Wilton tip and it has a small ridge around the large end that seems to help it stay in place better.

Melissa N. from Blessings Cakes & Cupcakes on 04/17/2018

This decorating tip is the perfect size for filling cupcakes and pastries. It is just a basic tip, no design but sometimes that's all you need!

Gail P. on 02/09/2018

I think this small to medium sized plain pastry tube is best used for frosting bite size cupcakes. It adds just enough frosting with a simple pipe.

L O. from Fast Casual Cafe on 02/08/2018

Perfect for my beehive cupcakes! Works great with reusable bags. I leave the tips on and freeze my frosting to use later. Buy more than one!

Candy M. on 01/25/2018

This size is an "in between size" - you can't really use it for writing, but it is good for borders on cakes or for frosting some cupcakes - For the price, try different ways to use this tip!

Nicole B. from Hardcore Sweet on 01/11/2018

Hi I am using the 5/16" #3 plain pastry tube witch is just a plain round tip. It is simple and easy witch is good for a mom like me.

Nora S. on 12/31/2017

I'm a fan of Ateco piping tips. They're always reliable and reasonably priced. I used this size for various cake/pastry piping jobs and it's perfect.

Maria S. on 12/12/2017

This plain pastry tube has a 5/16" wide tip. The tube is made by Ateco, a very high quality manufacturer of pastry tools. Pastry tubes can be used to decorate cakes, cupcakes, and other pastries and desserts. The tools makes decorating easy and precise. The pastry tube is made of durable stainless steel. We highly recommend hand washing these attachments.

Brandon G. from Dig & Serve on 12/07/2017

A good strong 5/16 tip good for piping larger diameter round design or writing bolder letters. Good quality stainless as always with Ateco. You can't go wrong.

Hai N. on 12/06/2017

This 5/16" plain #3 pastry tip make such elegant patterns of a great circle which I love to use whenever decorating cakes or cookies. I highly recommend using them for any baking you may do.

Tomas S. on 11/14/2017

This is a plain pastry tip, and easy to use with or without a coupler. I use this tip for piping macaroons, or when creating pearling. The Ateco brand tips are very good-they are made of stainless steel, hold up very well to normal use and abuse, and clean up easily in the dishwasher without rusting.

Peter K. on 10/10/2017

These are a perfect size for a pearl trim on a cake. Or if I want a nice thick buttercream name written on a cake.

Courtney G. from Courtney's Cakes And Sweet Treats on 09/20/2017

Ateco 803 5/16" Plain #3 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) is the perfect item for writing on cakes and cupcakes, it's thin enough to draw detail.
